Yanagawa River Boat, Yanagawa

4.2
See scenes of the old town from the canal that runs through it on Yanagawa River Boat. The traditional wooden boats, steered with a pole by a boatman at the back of the vessel, float slowly around the canal system of the historic castle town. Along the way, you'll take in sights of the trees, traditional Japanese storehouse architecture, and daily life in the town. Watch how the steerers carefully guide the boats and their handful of passengers, with the peaceful, ambling tours lasting around 1 hour and 10 minutes.

  • A full boat carry around 18-20 people. The punter will talk in Japanese along the way ( and sing as well). As a foreigner, just relax and enjoy this one hour ride.  more »

  • Boatman's gruel gone while you paddle ships and kurara, overlooks the city of Yanagawa. So come out kotatsu in winter is even more elegance. I think I know the Yanagawa boatman will include a description of the city, so a good place.
